Sec et gourmand, un excellent rhum. Le prix est assez aléatoire, parfois à moins de 80€ c’est le top !
Préférer celui ci aux différents mount gilboa et autres last wards !

Rum tasting with my buddy in Hamburg included Mount Gay 1703 Old Cask. Very nice high end bottle and label design. Golden color. Pure oakiness to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Harsh burn at the end. Maybe our bottle was heavy on the 10 year rum mixture and very light on the 30 year.

In mouth: Little dry and slightly sweet. If you let it breath for a couple of minutes you can taste less the alcohol and really enjoy the flavors (some fruit too). After taste is first rough/dry that quickly turns into a sweet and buttery taste that lasts long.
In nose: sweet (honey) and fruits
For the price I was expecting a product that really stands out; something not so rough but smoother. The sweetness is amazing (not too sweet).

Great blend of pot and column, between rum from 10 - 30 years.

Floral and toasty fresh baked biscotti. Sour cherry and half ripen peach.
I enjoy the acidity pretty much as it encourage me to sip without hesitating.

Dry with fruitiness of tropical fruits: dried coconut flesh, mango and unripe pineapple.
Follow with burned cigar ash.
Dried sensation compare with MGXO.

Earthy, dry finishing with mineral. Light touch of acidity of unripe pineapple juice and its on a very positive side.
Oakiness strike in as time goes by.

Could have rated it at 8 if it wasn't so costly.

Is great at what it does, but not being an avid fan of the too smoky, I can only Enjoy it from time to time

This is an incredibly smooth rum with a beautiful finish. The longer aging really brings out the flavors of the casks with great hints of vanilla and fruit touching the pallet. One of my favorites but there are better rums for less money.

Bought this a year ago and tried it resently, a bit harsh for such a talked up rum

Not sugared. The sweet is is is the age. So the flavors are long lasting and the finish is fat. Others tasting notes describe the profile. I respect it like a fine wine, well made and worth taking time to enjoy. So far have had only neat with no ice. For me I will share only with my friends.
